shadows on silver

When we take a photograph we are recording the reflected light, or lack of light, that is present at any given moment. If we are using a traditional (rather than digital) means of photography, that light is being captured in small grains of silver nitrate. Yet the play of light itself is not always the primary object of the photograph.

In this collection the light, the shadows and the silhouettes take on the starring role.
